A new monograph capturing the unique spirit of British fashion icon Sir Paul Smith through 50 objects chosen by Sir Paul himself. This Special Edition of the book was limited to 350 copies worldwide and is no longer available. This new monograph captures the unique spirit of legendary British fashion designer Sir Paul Smith. Through the lens of 50 objects, chosen by Sir Paul himself for the inspiration they have provided him over the years, the book explores everything from his very first show in Paris, his Floral Street shop in London, to the evolution of the stripe and his most recent collections and collaborations. In this way the book presents his work in a surprising and visually exciting way and shows him to be a truly dynamic and versatile designer.
The book opens with a foreword by Jonathan Ive, former Chief Design Officer of Apple, and goes on to provide an unprecedented insight into one of the most creative minds working in British and international design today. This beautiful limited edition of the monograph features a silky cover in the classic Paul Smith stripe with intricate embroidered typography, is signed by Sir Paul, and comes in an elegant cloth-bound box.
Inside the box of each of the 350 limited-edition books there is a Polaroid print taken, and signed, by Sir Paul specially for the book. No two photographs are the same, making every edition truly unique. This example has never been opened, still in the cellophane wrapper. The polaroid features signed football shirts.This item is in the category "Books, Comics & Magazines\Books". The seller is "treforr" and is located in this country: GB.
